does a court order about child custody run out

This answer was rated:

does a court order about child custody run out in uk

Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
All such orders end on the child's 16th birthday except in certain very limited circumstances.
They also end when a further Order is made
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

would someone breaking the court order be in contempt of court

Could you explain what exactly has happened?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

my daughter has full custody of her 13 year old son after an argument he went to his dads he now says the court order has run out and hes keeping him

Does the child want to return home?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

he says not but his father has done this before and involved social services

after a lot of trouble she regained sole custody the father is a master at getting the kids to say they want to live with him but as soon as they come back its a different storey

Your daughter is entitled to go to court to try and enforce the Order using a form C79
However I have to be honest and say that if the young man does not wish to return then the court will not force him to do so
